Fellow Nobles;
We live in exciting times. We will be initiating over 30 new members on or by

supportive in our membership drive. Please help me welcome them October

Potentate Tailgate of the Arkansas/Florida game. GO HOGS! We will have
pre and/or post game live music by the Art Deco Tri. Fun times for all!
October 17th starts our 4th Haunted House. It is looking creepy. Come see a
sneak peak every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-9. Don’t forget to buy you
Haunted house tickets we mail you earlier this month.
As usual the Calendar is packed. The holiday’s are coming so which means
we will switch gears to parades, parties, and especially our children. Last

Party. We are out of Gifts. Please consider contributing to the Patient Party
fund to buy Christmas Gift for the Children again this year. The party will be
December 8, at 2pm.
Speaking of Parties, why not end the year with a bang and help a worthy
cause. We will be hosting a New Years Eve Party December 31st with Our
Shriner Hospital Monte Carlo Benefit. Due to space limitations, tickets will be
limited to the First 150 Couple or 300 People. Tickets are $50 per person or
$100 per couple. We will have the same band as at the Ball, Mike Grimes and
the Loose Ends. We will also have charitable gaming tables. Use your winnings to buy several of the auction Items at the end of the night. All sponsorships, prizes, and tickets will be tax deductible as a donation to this Shriners
Hospital for Children Fundraiser. We will Also have a Patient Ambassador as
well as Staff from our St. Louis Hospitals to answer any question about Shriners Hospitals in St. Louis.

D.O.N. Message
Congratulations to Scimitar Shrine on the number of candidates for your upcoming ceremonial. Mat-Ta-Nah
Temple is looking forward to the ladies luncheon and the rest of the days activities.
It's been a hot, busy month for many of us. This transplanted northwesterner can't figure out whether to water or drain the swamp. We do know fall is on the way because they are picking muscadines and the tomatoes are loosing their leaves. Anyone out there tired of tending the garden and all the wonderful fresh produce.
Mat-Ta-Nah Temple has sent a big box of school supplies and pillow cases to the Shreveport hospital, with
more to go after next stated session. We will be collecting socks for toddlers and teen girls. And more pillow
cases. I am empting my stash, much to my Noble's delight.
We are continuing planning for our ceremonial November 13 when Supreme Queen Margaret Ann will ride
into town on the tour bus so generously provided by Daughters of the Nile Foundation, Shriner's Hospitals for
Children and Shrine International. She is expected at Scimitar Shrine Center about 10:00. Come see it and
stay for the banquet.
Up coming dates:
